1.1 What Is a Signal? A signal is formally defined as a function of one or more variables that conveys information on the nature of a physical phenomenon. When the function depends on a single variable, the signal is said to be one dimensional . When the function depends on two or more variables, the signal is said to be multidimensional .
Recall: Relations and Functions A relation is a set of ordered pairs. Example: The parks and Recreation Board suspects that the number of people who go to White Sands Beach on any given day depends on the temperature on that day. The following summarizes some of the data collected over on summer and it can be described with ordered pairs {(60, 27), (70, 94), (75, 138), (80, 221), (85, 347), (90, 462)}. The first coordinate of each pair is the temperature, and the second coordinate is the number of people at the beach. This set is an example of relation.

Recall: Relations and Functions The set of all first coordinates is the domain of the relation, and the set of all second coordinates is the range of the relation. A function is a relation in which no two ordered pairs have the same first coordinate. Alternative definition of a function: A function x ( t ) is a rule that assigns any permissible value of the variable t to a unique value x . The domain is the set of all permissible values of t .
1.2 What Is a System? A system is formally defined as an entity that manipulates one or more signals to accomplish a function, thereby yielding new signals. Alternative definition of a system: A system can be viewed as a process in which input signals are transformed by the system or cause the system to response in some way, resulting some signals as outputs.
